When you donate to Heartland Health Outreach, you make it possible for us to provide medical and dental care, safe housing, healthy food, nutrition counseling, and critical mental health counseling sessions to help people recover and move forward in their lives. Because of you, our participants will have the opportunity to move from homeless to housed, from poor health to stable health, from poorly nourished to healthy.
There are many ways to support our work:
Monthly Giving – Recurring monthly gifts provide sustaining support for our services through funding we can count on. It allows you to budget gifts throughout the year, making a sizable donation more manageable. At the end of the year, we’ll prepare and send you a statement including a record of all your gifts for your income tax records.
Honor or Memory Gifts – Tribute gifts can occur in several ways. You can request that people make donations to Heartland Health Outreach in lieu of gifts for a special occasion, like a birthday or wedding. You can also leave instructions that memorial gifts be made in your memory in lieu of flowers. If you’re looking for a truly meaningful way to show your appreciation of a loved one, you can make a gift in honor or memory of that person. Honorees or designated family members of a memorial gift will receive a card from Heartland Health Outreach acknowledging your thoughtfulness.
Matching Gifts – Double or triple your donation to Heartland Health Outreach through your company’s matching-gift program! These programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to us with your contribution. We’ll process the matching gift with your company.
